"Marriage is a commitment between a man and a woman to share their entire lives in an intimate way. It is a commitment by each to join their lives together forever to encourage the other to grow in holiness, to remain completely faithful to one another, to receive God's gift of children and raise them lovingly in faith.

Therefore, our Lord raised marriage to the dignity of a sacrament, a sign of Christ's love. In marriage, Catholics encounter not only our Creator but also Christ, the Redeemer of all, and his Spirit, the Sanctifier." - Marriage in the Lord, Archdiocese of Baltimore
